All That Glitters: Fun to make stars that are created in a very slick way from just four charm squares (two each of two fabrics). This project goes together quickly because of this fast method. Beginner Friendly.
Back to Basics: On-going demo style class* for beginners or those wishing to hone their skills. Class meets twice a month on the first and third Monday from 2 pm to 3 pm. The first class will start with accurate and safe use of the rotary cutter and simple piecing then will progress to more difficult blocks, borders, quilting and binding. At the end of the class you will have a completed quilt. There will be about 12 sessions. Each session will cost $5 which includes the pattern and the lesson. Kits available. Beginner friendly.
*demo style class means you will receive the patterns and a demonstration of the technique, but you don't need to bring your machine
Beading: Learn the basics of hand beading. The project is small so you can get the idea without a huge investment in time or money. One session.

If there is interest we will progress to adding zippers to the top and pockets, magnetic snaps, pockets inside the bag, etc. in future sessions.
